Enrolling At Mallacoota P-12
Our College aims to be a happy learning community where students can understand and achieve their full potential in a unique social and natural environment. We expect everyone who interacts with our students to uphold particular values and behaviours.

Respecting, Learning, Striving
Prep Enrolment Information
Children must be five years of age by the 30th April of the year in which they start school.
The school is required to ensure that all children enrolled at the school have an Immunisation School Entry Certificate which will assist the school to identify children at risk in the event of an outbreak of a reportable disease. Schools request a “school entry certificate” as part of the enrolment process.
We welcome your support with a wide range of tasks. If you would like to become involved in your child’s school, please contact the class teacher or the school.
School Uniform/Dress Code
All students from Prep to year 12 are required to be in school uniform at all times.
School Uniform is made up of the following items:
- Plain navy blue windcheater
- Plain sky blue or white polo top, shirt, skivvy or tee shirt
- Plain navy blue trousers, cargo pants, denim jeans or shorts
- A navy blue hat will be available.
- Optional: • Spray jacket in Mallacoota colours (navy, sky blue and white)
Girls may also choose: Pleated tartan skirt in school colours or school dress
All these items are available from the College Office.
Students living further than the Karbeethong Road/Avenue top intersection are eligible travellers (over 4.8 km from the College).
Contact and Emergency Phone Numbers
It is of vital importance that we have a Contact Number and Emergency Contact Number on file for all students. Should an unexpected situation arise (illness, accident, change of clothing required etc.) an emergency contact should be designated if the parent or guardian is not available.
We use uEducateus to record student absence. Please contact the college office for your parental login.
If your child is absent, make a phone call to the school on the morning of the absence, and a written note must be brought to the child’s teacher when the child returns. If the absence is going to be lengthy please notify either the Principal or the child’s teacher.
Leaving school during school hours
Students are not permitted to leave school early, or at any time during the school day, unless the parent has notified, in writing, to either the child’s class teacher or the principal.
Scholastic Bookclub materials, “Star”, “Lucky” and “Arrow” are sent home on a regular basis (approx. 8 times a year). There is a vast selection of books, games and computer software available. During Book Week the Library will have a book sale with supplies from Scholastic.
We follow the Department of Education and Training’s Enrolment policy. For more information on enrolling your child at a Victorian Government school, see How to choose a school and enrol.
